I hope it woks out. I figure it'll probably be most vulnerable when it's fully loaded and open...just seems like a lot of weight that's essentially cantilevered when it's in the "open" position, but I'm not an engineer. Could be fine as long as it's handled with care.

Good looking floors by the way. My wife would kill for those.

Thanks we actually just installed those this will make the wife happy. I'm going to go home again tonight and test it. Worst case to be safe I may add a caster or something like you suggested.

Just a quick update on the slides. My wife and I both stood inside the keezer holder and had the slides pulled by a friend. All is well and that is around 300#

Should you have an issue with the slides, get yourself a skateboard wheel and bearing setup, and make yourself a center mounted caster that rides on the floor at all times, and mount to the keezer slide out frame.

Nice build!

I can't wait to see your finished bar build. And I'm happy to report I get to see it firsthand on our Fantasy Football draft day!

Oh. by they way, thank you for contributing to my daughters college fund since I am going to win the league

Progress update: got some goodies in the mail this week, bar rail and all internal keg components. My favorite is the stout faucet. I must say kegconnection is awesome! They matched pricing and I received the package next day.

As for the bar we now have a hidden trash can that will slide out similar to the freezer. This will actually pull out from under the counter top of the non sitting side of the L. We will make a hole on the back side counter space where you can drop the trash into. The pull out will only be to empty the can.

In the midst of staining all the wood for the sides. We decided to stain and touch up rather than stain once it's nailed in and sided.

Once the staining is done ( this week) I hope to make a big leap in progress in the next week.
